Reporting cyber-harassment

Is a user making you feel uncomfortable? Let us know

 

If a user contacts you repeatedly and it makes you feel uncomfortable, you can take action.

Whether it's insulting, discriminatory or defamatory remarks, or even compliments, if it's unwanted and repeated this is called (cyber)harassment.

Harassment has NO place in virtual or in real life!

If you have been the victim of this behaviour, you can always report the person in question and block them. Our moderation team will then swiftly take the necessary measures.

Nothing good comes from cyberharassment, and it definitely doesn't lead to love. This is why Match actively participates in the prevention of cyberharassment and steps in when a large number of messages is sent to the same person without a reply.
